I have two nicknames for Nepal Hiking Team: 1. The “No Problem” team: 2. The “Can Do” team. They made Everest Base Camp Trek a “can do” with “no problem” for our pair of two elderly ladies.
We did the Everest Base Camp Trek in April 2019. From the very first email till the end of our trip, nothing was too big or too small for Mr. Ganga Raj Thapa – the founding manager. He kept a perfect balance in giving a 100% attention to our safety and comfort. Our emails- each one of them were answered in less than 24 hours. Do you even sleep Mr Ganga?
NHT took great care of our interests and comfort by making a customary itinerary not just before the trek but during the trek as well. Concerned about the long trek up to Namche on Day 2? No problem. We can modify the itinerary to hike further on Day 1 so you have more time for that climb into Namche. Want to hike Kalapattar in the afternoon instead of the morning? Again, no problem in switching the days around. The most impressive “can do” and “no problem” was the helicopter flight Mr. Ganga from Gorakshep that Mr. Ganga arranged for us during our descend. Not of it was pre planned yet, he would make it look like slicing a block of butter!
A special five star shout out goes to our guide, Bhim and our porter Raj. To us, Bhim was the extention of Mr. Ganga. We were his sole concern and preoccupation during the trip. There was never a doubt in his mind that we would reach the base camp. It must be his confidence and encouragement that took us to the base camp. No one was prouder (and more relieved) to see these two older ladies reach their goal. Thank you, Bhim and Raj for being our cheer leaders.
The logistics and preparations from NHT were accurate and meticulous. From airport pick-up to the final farewell, NHT went way beyond their limits to make our trip successful. They even went out to upgrade the accommodation as per our ease. Thanks a lot NHT; we had a trip of a lifetime!
We’d definitely recommend NHT without a second thought.
